Author: Vilches García, Imma

Abstract: The Right to Culture is the basic instrument to guarantee creation, freedom, participation, enjoy and diversity, therefore, to enable the knowledge and legitimization of multiple identities, to embrace difference and to dignify people. The arts are the crucial mechanism through which identities are formed and represented and, consequently, they are an important vehicle through which gender stereotypes can be broken. Talking about cultural rights with an LGTBI+ perspective no longer just means guaranteeing access to culture and cultural consumption, it also involves creating the optimal conditions to promote and make visible a culture that is practiced from the standpoint of dissent, one that generates new stories that they need to be recognized. This research study focuses on the city of Terrassa, a city that has always focused its public policies on guaranteeing the cultural rights of citizens. The general objective of this work is to explore the intersection between municipal strategies in the field of LGTBI+, Gender Equality and Visual Arts and to analyze whether cultural rights are fully guaranteed in Terrassa. In this context, I propose to analyze, using a qualitative methodology, the role played by the municipal visual arts program concerning LGTBI+ dissent: what it has contributed in the past and what it could contribute to the future, as well as its way of relating with LGBTI+ people and the public in general. In the construction of identities and symbolic value, we will look for what the local administration contributes, and we will record the discourses of civil society, the private sector and the third sector. Finally, we will suggest a series of recommendations so that the municipal visual arts program guarantees the cultural rights of LGTBI+ people.
